The Innevation Center: A Catalyst for Regional Enterprise

Welcome to The Innevation Center—a synergistic, collaborative space to stimulate the creation and incubation of start-ups and accelerate the growth of the knowledge-driven economy of our region.

The Innevation Center is designed to empower Nevada’s next generation of economic leaders by igniting the creative and entrepreneurial spirits in University of Nevada, Reno students, faculty, community creatives, makers, economic developers, and emerging global tech companies.

Anyone in the community can become a member—entrepreneurs, start-up companies and creatives—with privileges to the makerspaces, conference rooms, special events, co-working and networking opportunities.

We are open—free of charge—to all University current students, faculty and staff.
